A Selection of Writing Prompts

I’ve had the great fortune over the past week to stumble across some rather interesting writing prompts.

The first was shown to me by someone responding to my work on FictionPress.com. Her teacher had them randomly select several numbers, and then create a poem where each line had the number of syllables prescribed for that line. For example, let’s say I chose the series 2475656, then the first line would have two syllables, the second would have four, and so on.

The second and third came together in a post on increasing your creativity: riff on opening lines and play photo finish. I think both of these suggestions are great ideas as writing prompts.
